When you are struggling with an alcohol use disorder, it might feel like alcohol rehab will not save you.
Although you might feel like there is no cure to your alcoholism, you do not have to suffer alone.
Many different treatment options can help you to recover from your alcoholic tendencies and get healthy again.
Choosing an alcohol rehab depends on various factors, such as your medical history, support system, and personal motivation.
All of these factors also play a role in how successful your recovery is.
Your alcohol rehab should be supervised by a team of medical specialists at a specialized facility.
Throughout the country, many facilities provide you with the proper treatment and well-trained professionals to guide you through the process.
Whatever your challenges might be, your support system will be there to catch you when you fall and support you while you try again.
Overcoming Alcoholism is a Process
Overcoming alcoholism is a process.
Roughly greater than 40% of individuals that enter alcohol rehab relapse after one year of sobriety.
After five years of sobriety, the rate for relapse is about 15 percent.
If you are looking for long-term sobriety, you need to go to an inpatient or outpatient program.
After both of these treatment programs, you should also go to a local support group and continue counseling.
Going to alcohol rehab is the same as an investment.
It will completely change your life and give you the option for a sober future.
When Should You go to Alcohol Rehab?
The first step is admitting you have a problem and have a desire to quit. Oftentimes family members or friends may stage an alcohol intervention. Interventions involve those who are closest to you expressing their concern about your alcohol abuse.
Interventions can also help you begin talking about your addiction and move towards joining an alcohol rehab program. Alcoholism warning signs to look out for include:
- binge drinking every time you drink
- sudden shifts in mood
- poor performance at work or school
- neglecting responsibilities
- denial of excessive alcohol use
- violence or committing crimes
- decreased interest in hobbies that you once loved
There is no wrong time to seek treatment for an alcohol use disorder. The important thing to remember is that if your use disorder is left untreated, you may suffer from more health complications, financial troubles, relationship issues, and professional disruptions. The sooner you get help, the sooner you can obtain sobriety.
Assessing if You Need Alcohol Rehab
When you decide whether or not you need to go to alcohol rehab, the first step is to speak to a doctor or treatment professional. They will go through a series of assessments to decide if it is something you need to do.
The first step is that your doctor should ask you several questions related to your drinking habits. They may also want to speak to your family or close friends.
The next step will be to perform a physical exam. Your doctor may also ask questions about your health because many physical signs indicate alcohol abuse.
Although there are no specific tests that can provide you with information on an alcohol use disorder, specific patterns of lab test abnormalities can suggest it. You may also need to look into health problems related to your alcohol use, such as organ damage.
The next step will be to complete a psychological evaluation. This evaluation is essential because it includes questions about your symptoms, thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns. Typically this is in the form of a questionnaire.
Finally, your doctor should go through the 11 DSM-5 criteria. The American Psychiatric Association published this criterion that mental health professionals often use to diagnose different conditions.
There are a few different types of alcohol rehab programs. Choosing to get help alone is difficult. It is essential to go to a program that focuses on you and your mental disorders as a whole, rather than just your substance use.
Detoxification is the first step in treating an alcohol use disorder, which can also be the most challenging step. Within the first few days that you quit drinking, you will most likely experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
These symptoms can be life-threatening and should be completed under a medical professional’s care. Treatment professionals will also provide you with medication that can help ease the pain you feel from withdrawal. After detox, you can move into other forms of treatment.
An inpatient rehab facility is the most intense program that exists for treating an alcohol use disorder. Inpatient rehab is for severe forms of alcoholism and requires you to live at least 30 days at a rehab facility. These programs can range up to 60 or 90 days for more severe cases. These programs will teach you how to overcome triggers, the importance of sobriety, and what to do if you relapse.
Outpatient treatment is a program that you visit three to four times per week for around two to four hours each session. Rather than live at a treatment facility, an outpatient program allows you to maintain your responsibilities during treatment. Whether this is your job or your children’s care, outpatient programs can be beneficial to maintain normalcy while in treatment.
Alcohol counselors provide you guidance during recovery. Counselors offer communication during good times, as well as difficult times. You will also continue working on your triggers, which can help you stay away from them until you can face them. Overall, alcohol counseling will provide you the ability to learn about yourself and keep yourself healthy.
